Memories from 2015

Earthbag project

Here you can see the process of building a small building with earth bags.

We chose to build a standard roof construction.

We asked the children to start the building process with a very kind neighbour, Toiko as our building manager. The children started this work during their summer vacation. When they went back to school we hired some helpers to finish the building.

The result is fantastic! Not only is the building very solid and “termite” free (termites cannot digest the bags we use) – it is also a “cool” place to be in – since the walls accumulates the heat.

People in the surrounding community have followed the process and are very impressed.

And we look forward to sharing all our “hands on experience”.
